Well, they sure haven't wasted any time. Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald may have just gotten engaged, but the soon-to-be-married couple already has babies on the brain. According to Jessa, she and her fiance want to have a big family, just like her parents did.
Plus, Duggar and Seewald are already thinking about adoption. In case you didn't already know, Jessa is one of 19 children, and her husband-to-be is the oldest of seven. And the pair will definitely follow suit and plan on having a large Duggar-Seewald clan of their own.
We are talking about our goals and even just like the future, with family, we both talked about adoptions. We are open to having children and both want to adopt, too.

As for the number of kids they'll have? Just like her parents and her sister, Jill, they'll leave that part "up to God." But at least Jessa and Ben are open to different methods.
Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar had all 19 of their kids the good ol' fashioned way and have faced backlash for their decision to continue to conceive, even after multiple medical complications. It's known that the more pregnancies a woman has, the higher her risk of pregnancy-related death.
But it looks like Jessa is realistic about her family plans. And it's nice to see that she's thinking about adoption right from the start rather than as an "in case we can't get pregnant" scenario. Because it doesn't have to be! Starting out with plans to adopt is a wonderful way to plan for family.
Either way, it looks like the Duggar family will definitely expand.
What do you think of Jessa and Ben's family plans?
